Natalie Portman ('Black Swan') in an 'utterly fearless performance' (Rob Nelson, Variety) stars as a newlywed trying to cope with guilt and loss in this sensitive and compelling modern drama adapted by writer-director Don Roos ('The Opposite of Sex') from the novel by Ayelet Waldman. Portman plays Emilia, a law-school graduate who falls in love with her married boss, Jack (Scott Cohen, 'The Understudy'). After Emilia marries Jack, her happiness turns unexpectedly to grief following the death of her infant daughter. Devastated, Emilia nonetheless carries on, attempting to forge a connection with her stepson William (Charlie Tahan, 'I Am Legend') and to resist the interference of Jack‘s jealous ex-wife (Lisa Kudrow, 'Easy A,' 'The Opposite of Sex'). Don Roos ('Happy Endings,' 'Bounce') demonstrates his keen eye for the nuances of love, loss, and rebuilding life in this heartfelt and touching drama.
